4.2/5 Goodreads

Funny, bawdy, full of T. Coraghessan Boyle's inimitable flights of imaginative and stylistic fancy, Water Music follows the wild adventures of Ned Rise, thief and whoremaster, and Mungo Park, explorer, through London's seamy gutters and Scotland's scenic highlands-to their grand meeting in the heart of darkest Africa. There they join forces and wend their hilarious way to the source of the Niger.

"Move over, Thomas Pynchon, John Barth. And make room for T. Coraghessan Boyle, the latest and perhaps the best young black-humorist to come cavorting down the pike in many a moon. To greet his novel as a triumph
is just not sufficient; it is a romantic first . . . an immensely readable tale that runs the gamut of human emotions." - Los Angeles Herald Examiner
"Water Music does for fiction what Raiders of the Lost Ark did for film." - Boston Sunday Globe
